ONE OF THE FRENCH "BLUE DEVILS" By their
queer costumes some of the French infantrymen at the
front have earned the sobriquet of "Blue Devils." As a
result of discarding rifles and bayonets and equipping
themselves instead in steel helmets, goggles, anti-gas
masks, revolvers and formidable knives, the modern French
soldier resembles a movie highwayman.
